THINGS TO EAT: Voodoo Cafe, Darlington


Despite the fact that I’m desperately to save up some moolah, I absolutely love eating out. As soon as the option arrives, I leap at the chance. Most recently, that option was to go to lunch with April and after a quick chat about options, we decided to try out Voodoo Cafe in Darlington.


Now, I used to go to Voodoo a lot before I moved to Scotland. In fact, I even had my 18th birthday dinner there! Somewhere along the line, it fell off of my radar however so it has been a little while since I visited.

The lunch menu was smaller than I remembered but still had plenty of options for me. There was slightly less choice for April, who is a vegan, but she managed to make it work! We also had a sneak peek at the evening menu and it looked like she would have more options if we decided to come again later in the day.

Since I am terribly indecisive, I went for the tapas-esque option and ordered three small plates rather than one dish. I ordered nachos (delicious and April helped with the none dairy parts!), a mini quesadilla (so good – their quesadillas are one of the things I used to love from Voodoo) and a mushroom taco. The taco was the real highlight for me. The mushrooms were slightly spicy, which went beautifully with some super crumbly feta. It was a winning combination!

DSCN7889April chose a salad and some wedges, which she declared tasty but she would have liked a slightly bigger portion! At least she will know for next time! I’m sure when we pop along for dinner, she’ll find something that is both flavorful and filling.
